Rhode Island troopers sent a new stuffed cheetah toy to a boy who wrote them a letter after losing his cheetah out the window on a highway.

Four-year-old Will Ketcher was riding in a car when his stuffed cheetah, Roger, fell out the window onto Interstate 95, The Associated Press reported. Heartbroken, his dad suggested they write to the state police after the family returned home to Brooklyn.

The letter began: "Dear Rhode Island State Highway Patrol, I lost my Roger ... can you please find him?"

Cpl. Lawens Fevrier tells WPRI-TV "we were all 4 years old at one time in our lives."

Patrols found no sign of Roger, but the troopers sent the boy a package explaining they did find another cheetah who wanted to live in New York. They even made it a trooper.
